This vibrant duo out of London, England consist of Marsha Ambrosius and Natalie Stewart they formed Floetry in 1997. Floetry is ahead of so many contemporary R&B acts. Rather than being put in a box like many of the R&B divas, Floetry has chosen to look outside of the box. With one half dedicated to pipes and the other dedicated to poetry and alterative rap. Their sound is fantastic. From 1997 to 2006 Floetry was doing their thing in the music industry. They put out three albums Floetic in 2002, Floacism in 2003 and Flo'Ology in 2005. In my opinion they just kept getting better. Then in 2006 Marsha Ambrosius signed a solo record deal. In 2007 she released Neo Soul is Dead album and parted ways with Natalie Stewart. In late 2010 Natalie Stewart release Spoken Soul Volume 1. The artistry of both these women is amazing. Both of these women are artists in the truest sense of the word. This is a wonderful merging of styles that is unique. Well, all you fans of Floetry there back together! They will be performing at Yoshi's Oakland, California on April 5th, 6th and 7th of 2016. You can check some songs of Floetry on Streetwise Radio.
